Craziness and richness intensify with the publication of this, the final installment in the Crazy Rich Asians trilogy, as Kevin Kwan unveils Rich People Problems (Anchor, $16.95), a book that dares to reveal the shameful shamelessness and the vicious avariciousness of a Singaporean clan descending into power-hungry madness at the very edge of the deathbed of the family's grandmother. The entire Shang-Young brood converges on her home in hopes of inheriting her sprawling 64-acre Tyersall Park estate — ripping away the veneer of their genteel lives, finally showing us the base and squalling horrors that constantly writhe just beneath the surface.
